Stelrad supports local 12 year old MMA fighter

Stelrad Radiators – one of the largest local employer in the Mexborough area – has supported a young Multi Skilled Martial Arts black belt fighter to get to the World Championships in Florida.

Max Peart is a 12 year old black belt in Multi Skilled Martial Arts and will be performing in the Freestyle Forms and Creative Weapons – with Nunchucks – at the World Championships in Florida that start on 4th November. He trains regularly at the ACMAC – the Andy Crittenden Martial Arts Centre, in Balby, Doncaster. Max flies out to Florida with his parents on 4th November to represent Team England at the World Championships. He has been competing in competitions for nearly two years and in March 2017 entered a national competition in Bradford where he won two silver medals that qualified him for a place in the World Championships.

Max’s parents decided to seek support locally for the nearly £4,000 cost of the trip for themselves and Max, and Stelrad was happy to respond and recently presented him with a cheque towards the total: “We’re really grateful for the generosity from Stelrad,” says Max’s mum, Ann. “It’s a lifetime opportunity for him to take part in these championships and we’re desperate to be there to share it with him, so our thanks go to Stelrad and other local businesses that have helped us to make this trip a reality.”

Stelrad’s HR Manager Lisa Chambers presented Max with his cheque: “As a business we’re keen to be supportive of local excellence particularly in the sporting arena and we were delighted to be able to agree to support Max and his parents as they head off to the States. He’s very young and we look forward to following his progress in the years ahead.”
